Harold Pinter in conversation at the British Library:
Well, we’d all certainly like to imagine we’ll one day meet our heroes over far too much tobacco, alcohol, and onion soup at 4 o’clock in the morning. But for master of biting words of brilliance Harold Pinter, his first meeting with Samuel Beckett was an ideal encounter. While his play The Caretake...

In honor of his birthday: Harold Pinter Remembers Samuel Beckett
The US 'has exercised a clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good' - Harold Pinter
I believe that despite the enormous odds which exist, unflinching, unswerving, fierce intellectual determination, as citizens, to define the real truth of our lives and our societies is a crucial obligation which devolves upon us all. It is in fact mandatory. If such a determination is not embodied in our political vision we have no hope of restoring what is so nearly lost to us - the dignity of man. --Harold Pinter, Nobel Lecture 2005
Sir Arthur John Gielgud, OM, CH (/ˈɡiːlɡʊd/; 14 April 1904 – 21 May 2000), was an English actor and theatre director whose career spanned eight decades. The Independent described him as one of a great trinity of actors, together with Ralph Richardson and Laurence Olivier, who dominated the British stage for much of the 20th century.[1] He was a member of the Terry family theatrical dynasty and gained his first paid acting work as a junior member of his cousin Phyllis Neilson-Terry's company in 1922. After study at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art he worked in repertory theatre and in the West End before establishing himself at the Old Vic as an exponent of Shakespeare in 1929–31. During the 1930s Gielgud was a stage star in the West End and on Broadway, appearing in new works and classics. He began a parallel career as a director, and set up his own company at the Queen's Theatre, London. He was regarded by many as the finest Hamlet of his era, and was also known in high comedy roles such as Joh ...

Finally a hard copy of my Harold Pinter adaptation. This is going to be great!
Today is the birthday of Irish avant-garde playwwright and poet, Samuel Barclay Beckett. Known for penning tragicomic works like "Waiting for Godot" and "Endgame," the renown writer would turn 107 years old if he were still alive today. Widely recognized as one of the most influential authors of the 20th century, the Dublin-born Beckett was famous for his bleak portrayals of humanity. Channeling compatriot James Joyce, his stories were often filled with black comedy and gallows humor and represented an open attack on the then-popular realist tradition. Throwing conventional plot lines and restricted time sequences to the wind, his experimental writing style paved the way for writers like Vaclav Havel, Tom Stoppard and Harold Pinter.

Throwback Thursday. When I was growing up in Mississippi I hated my lips. I was teased on the school bus mercilessly for having "n-word lips" although back in Mississippi in the 1960s the real term was used instead of "n-word." The nickname stuck and I was often called "n- r lips" when I wasn't being labeled a "sissy." I remember sitting on that school bus as a seven year old and wondering if there were a surgical procedure for making my lips smaller as I had heard on television that one could get a nose job. It wasn't until I moved my sissy self to New York City when I was 19 that I realized that my lips were actually one of my best features. It had never dawned on me before. Indeed, my first Christmas Eve ever spent away from home was spent with my first mentor in New York, Henry Geldzahler, taking me to Sardi's for a Christmas Eve dinner and then to see Harold Pinter's Betrayal on Broadway starring Blythe Danner and Raul Julia and Roy Scheider. After the play, we went to a dive *** bar on Eighth ...

He has frequently worked as a dramaturg and a director of radio drama, and has translated numerous plays and novels by authors such as Harold Pinter, Mark Ravenhill, Neil LaBute, David Gieselmann, Marius von Mayenburg, Thomas Bernhard, Roddy Doyle, Henrik Ibsen, George Tabori, Tennessee Williams, Günter Grass and Hertha Mueller. Bjarni Jónsson is co-founder and associate artistic director of the LÓKAL Theatre Festival Reykjavík, an annual event that brings new theatre to the Icelandic audience and connects Icelandic theatremakers with the international scene.
I've never wanted to see much more of Harold Pinter than a bit here or there, until last night, watching Derek Jacobi and Michael Gambon brilliantly perform a scene from "No Man's Land," during the 50th anniversary celebration of Britain's National Theatre that PBS aired as part of their Great Performances series. Benedict Cumberbatch did a great job with the coin-tossing scene from "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead," as well. Unfortunately I had to stop there. Fortunately it's still on the DVR for later. :) The only thing better would be a complete performance of Rosencrantz.

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz play Betrayal takes $17.5m in 14 weeks Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz's revival of Betrayal has taken $17.5 million (£10.7m) in just 14 weeks. The new Broadway production of Harold Pinter's classic play was met with mixed reviews but was hugely popular due to the presence of the married actors. Betrayal opened on October 1, before closing on Sunday (January 5). Top-price tickets went for $275 (£167) and $499 (£304). Also starring Rafe Spall, the play became Broadway's second most successful production in 2013. Nora Ephron's play Lucky Guy, starring Tom Hanks, topped the list with takings of just under $23m (£14m). Directed by Mike Nichols, Betrayal tells the story of a wife who has an affair with her husband's best friend. It also set the record for highest-grossing non-musical in a single week in Broadway history over the Christmas period, earning $1.44m (£0.8m) for the week ending December 29. Pinter's 1978 play was inspired by his affair with BBC television presenter J ...
Found myself alphabetizing my books yesterday. Interesting things happened*, Harold Pinter's Birthday Party ended up beside Helen Pidd's Bicycle and Ned Boulting's On the Road Bike is squeezed up against Eric Bulson's Novels, Maps, Modernity. It was a slow day. That is all. *what ever floats your boat.
The star system might be waning in Hollywood, but not when those stars take to the Broadway stage. The Mike Nichols-directed revival of the Harold Pinter play Betrayal, which stars Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Rafe Spall, just set a new Broadway box office record when it grossed $1.44 million...
Betrayal: Ghastly and dull. Tired and beaten up story of marital infidelity, (not surprising as it's a rehash of 1978 Harold Pinter play) saved only from entertainment flatline by the delicious Daniel Craig, and the standup performance of Rafe Spall ... Feeling a little betrayed myself!!

'The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there.' You'll know that of course from L P Hartley's wonderful novel, the Go-Between, and equally probably from the superb film adaptation by Harold Pinter and Joseph Losey . (and which 13-year-old boy wouldn't have lost his heart and sacrificed all for Julie Christie?) Anyway I've been thinking about that statement a bit recently? Is it true? What does it mean? Do they really do things differently elsewhere and at other points in time? What's set this off has been a dabbling in matters historical. First of all seeing the touring British Museum exhibition about the Roman Empire (at the Bristol Museum). What struck me was not how different the Romans were in so many things but how similar they were to us. Now that may well have been in part a result of the selection of the objects on view and the interpretation given to them in the accompanying text. But the most striking object was a perfectly preserved child's sock from Turkey (I think), knitted ...

Harold Pinter, actor, playwright and screenplay penman is often misunderstood… exactly one of his raison neurs. Pinter, “Once many years ago, I found myself engaged uneasily in a public discussion on theatre. Someone asked me what my work was about. I replied with no thought at all and merely to frustrate this line of enquiry: ‘the weasel under the cocktail cabinet.’ This was a great mistake. Over the years I have seen that remark quoted in a number of learned columns. It has now seemingly acquired a profound significance, and is seen to be a highly relevant and meaningful observation about my own work. But for me the remark meant precisely nothing.” As an actor, director and playwright, I value the so-called Pinter-pause, because it connotes(for me) the expression in the silent moments between the spoken dialogue on stage… often where much is ‘said’… expressed without words… not the same as Marcel Marceau’s moving expressions, but something and nothing else. Those unfamiliar ...

Mojo at the Harold Pinter Theatre last night: Rupert Grint from Harry Potter, Brendan Coyle from Downton Abbey, Ben Whishaw from Bond. So good!!
Just seen at the Harold Pinter. Fabulous production. Great cast. Tom Stoppard also enjoying the show
The programme was marvellous tonight. Included scenes from wide range of productions from Ayckbourn to Shakespeare. Highlights were Judi Dench singing Send In The Clowns, Roger Allam reciting a speech from Copenhagen + Sit Down You're Rocking The Boat from Guys And Dolls. Disappointed there wasn't any Pinter though. Surely a Harold Pinter play must have been performed at The National at some point?
Went to see Harold Pinter play MOJO - Jez Butterworth's version (modernised) Really interesting play and great cast - Rupert Grint, Ben Wishaw, Colin Morgan (Merlin), Brendan Coyle (Mr Bates) and Daniel Mays. Well acted and I couldn't believe how fast the play passed by!

Modesty, that rare virtue, has this year alighted upon the Nobel prizes. Physicist Peter Higgs evaporated into a Highland walking tour to evade media attention, then Alice Munro, the 82-year-old doyenne of the short story, outdid him – by being simply unaware that there was a certain literature prize in the offing. "Mom, you won," said one of her daughters, waking her up with the news. "I was kind of dazed about what I had won," Munro told the Canadian broadcaster CBC in a brief and rare interview. "I had no idea of it. I don't think I knew I was even on a list until maybe yesterday." Munro is the second Canadian-born writer to win be awarded the Nobel prize for literature – after Saul Bellow – and the 13th woman. "Can this be possible?" she asked. "Really? It seems dreadful there's only 13 of us." With her acceptance of the 8m Swedish krona (£775,000) prize she joins a rollcall of 110 past winners including Thomas Mann, Harold Pinter, Toni Morrison, Doris Lessing, Albert Camus and Ernest Hemingway ...
Pause It would be Harold Pinter's eighty-third birthday: wrote a lot of things I don't like. But it's his birthday, so let's have what primary teachers call 'three stars and a wish': * '...You know, believe it or not, you've got a funny kind of resemblance to a bloke I once knew in Shoreditch. Actually he lived in Aldgate. I was staying with a cousin in Camden Town. This chap, he used to have a pitch in Finsbury Park, just by the bus depot. When I got to know him I found out he was brought up in Putney. That didn't make any difference to me. I know quite a few people who were born in Putney. Even if they weren't born in Putney they were born in Fulham. The only trouble was, he wasn't born in Putney, he was only brought up in Putney. In turned out he was born in the Caledonian Road, just before you get to the Nag's Head. His old mum was still living at the Angel. All the buses passed right by the door. She could get a 38, 581, 30 or 38A, take her down the Essex Road to Dalston Junction in next to no time. ...

All that happens is that the destruction of human beings - unless they're Americans - is called collateral damage. - Harold Pinter

The Birthday Party (1957) is the second full-length play by Harold Pinter and one of Pinter's best-known and most-frequently performed plays. The Birthday Party is about Stanley Webber, an erstwhile piano player in his 30s, who lives in a rundown boarding house, run by Meg and Petey Boles, in an English seaside town, "probably on the south coast, not too far from London"] Two sinister strangers, Goldberg and McCann, who arrive supposedly on his birthday and who appear to have come looking for him, turn Stanley's apparently innocuous birthday party organized by Meg into a nightmare. The men messing with Stanley is pretty much the whole play, and therefore, it makes this part very significant. Stanley’s emotions reflect his mental and psychological problems, and these emotions make up most of the play. His emotions also bring some humor into the play, to add a little bit of a lighter mood. Mainly, the whole play is based off of one character’s mental and psychological problems. The Birthday Party has be ...
(AUTHOR)Samuel Beckett was born in Dublin in 1906. He befriended the famous Irish novelist James Joyce, and his first published work was an essay on Joyce. In 1951 and 1953, Beckett wrote his most famous novels, the trilogy Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnameable. Waiting for Godot, Beckett's first play, was written originally in French in 1948 (Beckett subsequently translated the play into English himself). It premiered at a tiny theater in Paris in 1953. This play began Beckett's association with the Theatre of the Absurd, which influenced later playwrights like Harold Pinter and Tom Stoppard. The most famous of Beckett's subsequent plays include Endgame (1958) and Krapp's Last Tape (1959). He also wrote several even more experimental plays, like Breath (1969), a thirty-second play. Beckett was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1969 and died in 1989 in Paris.2 (Waiting for Godot as a Christian religious play) Samuel Beckett speaks little in Waiting for Godot, yet manages to invites colossal critical discourses ...
Snowden's revelations are not merely about privacy, nor civil liberty, nor even mass spying. They are about the unmentionable: that the democratic facades of the United States now barely conceal a systematic gangsterism historically identified with if not necessarily the same as fascism. On Tuesday, a US drone killed 16 people in North Waziristan, "where many of the world's most dangerous militants live", said the few paragraphs I read. That by far the world's most dangerous militants had hurled the drones was not a consideration. President Obama personally sends them every Tuesday. In his acceptance of the 2005 Nobel Prize in Literature, Harold Pinter referred to "a vast tapestry of lies, upon which we feed". He asked why "the systematic brutality, the widespread atrocities" of the Soviet Union were well known in the West while America's crimes were "superficially recorded, let alone documented, let alone acknowledged". The most enduring silence of the modern era covered the extinction and dispossession ...
"When the storm is over and night falls and the moon is out in all its glory and all you're left with is the rhythm of the sea, of the waves, you know what God intended for the human race, you know what paradise is." Harold Pinter

Electric Len Hutton would be ninety-seven today. Harold Pinter: ‘…He was never dull...His play was sculptured. His forward defensive stroke was a complete statement. The handle of his bat seemed electric. Always, for me, a sense of his vulnerability, an uncommon sensibility.’ Pinter also wrote a poem about Len Hutton: I saw Len Hutton in his prime. Another time, another time. Pinter was supposed to have sent it to various other cricket-loving playwrights, of whom there have been many, Terence Rattigan, Tom Stoppard and Simon Gray among them. When he didn't get a reaction from Simon Gray, Pinter challenged him. ‘What do you think of my Hutton poem, Simon?’ Gray paused and answered, ‘Sorry, Harold, I haven't finished it yet.’ There’s the wonderful story of Len Hutton at the Headingley Winter Shed in 1933. George Hirst asked Maurice Leyland to watch him. Three bowlers bowled at Hutton -- then aged 17 -- for a quarter of an hour, after which Hirst asked Leyland what he thought. 'I couldn't tel ...
THE THEATRE OF THE ABSURD THE WEST AND THE EAST I. The West 'The Theatre of the Absurd' is a term coined by the critic Martin Esslin for the work of a number of playwrights, mostly written in the 1950s and 1960s. The term is derived from an essay by the French philosopher Albert Camus. In his 'Myth of Sisyphus', written in 1942, he first defined the human situation as basically meaningless and absurd. The 'absurd' plays by Samuel Beckett, Arthur Adamov, Eugene Ionesco, Jean Genet, Harold Pinter and others all share the view that man is inhabiting a universe with which he is out of key. Its meaning is indecipherable and his place within it is without purpose. He is bewildered, troubled and obscurely threatened. The origins of the Theatre of the Absurd are rooted in the avant-garde experiments in art of the 1920s and 1930s. At the same time, it was undoubtedly strongly influenced by the traumatic experience of the horrors of the Second World War, which showed the total impermanence of any values, shook the ...
Rumour that 'Chimerica' will transfer to the Harold Pinter in August given some weight in today's Daily Mail column by Baz Bamigboye
Dirk Bogarde He was brilliant at conveying British raunch and the English habit of masking intolerance as tolerance. After his matinee idol contract expired in the late nineteen-fifties--he was known as the English Rock Hudson for obvious and not so obvious reasons--he began to excavate his true performer self in highly literate smut, such as 1961's "Victim," about a *** barrister, and then, in 1962, the unsurpassable "The Servant," where he began to define his screen persona as the Englishman who reveled in class distinctions even as he excoriated the upper class for holding on to, and fetishizing, what they had, which was their class. Harold Pinter wrote the screenplay for "The Servant," and a few other of Bogarde's films, and, in a way, Pinter was the perfect writer for the actor: his fabled silences allowed Bogarde to fill the page with contempt, disregard, (imagined) plastic sheathed sex, and a weary acceptance. In a way, the only actress who could equal Bogarde's dirty-weekend-in-Buxton mind was Sa ...

Literature Main article: British literature The Chandos portrait, believed to depict William Shakespeare 'British literature' refers to literature associated with the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. Most British literature is in the English language. In 2005, some 206,000 books were published in the United Kingdom and in 2006 it was the largest publisher of books in the world.[377] The English playwright and poet William Shakespeare is widely regarded as the greatest dramatist of all time,[378][379][380] and his contemporaries Christopher Marlowe and Ben Jonson have also been held in continuous high esteem. More recently the playwrights Alan Ayckbourn, Harold Pinter, Michael Frayn, Tom Stoppard and David Edgar have combined elements of surrealism, realism and radicalism. Notable pre-modern and early-modern English writers include Geoffrey Chaucer (14th century), Thomas Malory (15th century), Sir Thomas More (16th century), John Bunyan (17th century) and John Milton (17th century). ...
